Pao De Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread)

I love these tiny morsels soft and chewy tasting almost like a mochi and the best thing is its cheesy! I can't resist them and whenever i pass by Petit Provence in Holland V i always head straight to buy them. So can you imagine my pleasure and shock when i found this recipe while surfing the net a couple of days ago i immediately printed it out and pasted the recipe onto my little notebook and the ingredients and steps are very very easy ok i shall stop gushing and let you guys have a look at the rest of the pictures and the recipe as follows!

From what i read these tiny morsels are a must have in Brazil sigh when will i get the chance to go Brazil?

I've bookmarked a similiar recipe from another blog, Simply Recipes. But hers look different than this, looks like a deflated kaya ball, I mean hers.
Your description of it like a mochi ball makes me want to try making this :)
